Gary Lee Green
Saginaw, Michigan
Beloved husband, father, brother, brother-in-law, and friend passed away peacefully at his home on April 6, 2024. Born on December 16, 1945, in Saginaw, Michigan, Gary was a proud graduate of Saginaw High School in 1963.

Gary's life was marked by his unwavering faith and his warm, funny personality that endeared him to many. He was an Elder at Faith Lutheran Church in Bridgeport and was confirmed in 2016.  Gary found joy in volunteering his time with food distribution and treasured his church family dearly. His commitment to service extended to his years in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1969, where he served on the U.S.S Orleck DD886 and the U.S.S Providence CLG-6. Gary worked at GM Saginaw Steering Gear for 35 years until his retirement in 2000.

Aside from his military service, Gary had a diverse set of interests that brought him immense pleasure. He loved sports, particularly basketball and football, enjoyed attending concerts, and being out in nature. Birdwatching and gardening were among his favorite pastimes, allowing him to appreciate the beauty of the world around him.

Surviving are two daughters: Karen Ehrhardt of Saginaw and Crystal Green of Saginaw; brother-in-law: Gary Waber of Saginaw. He was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Ann Green, wife Marlene Kay Green, and sister Carol Jean.

The Family would like to give a special thank you to Heart to Heart Hospice and the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center in Brighton for their kind and loving care.
